volume snapshot list

Displays info about a set of snapshots.

You can specify the snapshots by volumes or paths, or by specifying a filter to select volumes with certain characteristics.


maprcli volume snapshot list
    [ -cluster <cluster name> ]
    [ -columns <fields> ]
    [ -filter <filter> ] 
    [ -path <volume path list> ]
    [ -volume <volume list> ]
    [ -limit <rows> ]
    [ -output (terse|verbose) ]
    [ -start <offset> ]


Either volume or path can be used if you wish to specify the snapshots. In addition, filter can be used with volume and path, or independently.

Parameter Description
cluster The cluster on which to run the command.
columns A comma-separated list of fields to return in the query. See the Fields table below. Default: none

The following table lists the fields used in the columns parameter, and returned as output.

Field Name Short Name Description
snapshotid id Unique snapshot ID.
snapshotname n Snapshot name.
volumeid vid ID of the volume associated with the snapshot.
volumename vn Name of the volume associated with the snapshot.
volumepath vp Path to the volume associated with the snapshot.
ownername on Owner (user or group) associated with the volume.
ownertype ot Owner type for the owner of the volume:
  • 0=user
  • 1=group
cumulativeReclaimSizeMB cs Disk space used for the snapshot, in MB.
creationtime ct Snapshot creation time. Date time string (verbose output) or milliseconds since 1970 (terse output).
expirytime et Snapshot expiration time. Date time string (verbose output), or milliseconds since 1970 (terse output); 0 = never expires.

maprcli volume snapshot create -snapshotname uservolsnap -volume users
